What is Asbestos Remediation?
Asbestos remediation is the process by which ACMs are removed from a property by a professional team. An asbestos survey is usually carried out beforehand; something that is a legal requirement for all properties built before the year 2000. If such materials are identified during a survey, then the next step will involve a professional team entering your building and having them removed. This process is usually destructive, but it is essential for refurbishment and demolition work to continue.
ACMs contain harmful fibres that, when disturbed, are released into the air. This process, however, can pose severe health risks, given that theses fibres are not supposed to be inhaled. It is, therefore, essential for ACMs to be removed in their entirety before they’re disrupted. Doing so will keep all personnel in your building safe and will mean that you have complied with government legislation. Failure to remove ACMs when necessary, or have a survey performed, could lead to a prosecution.
